Youth Worker (18.5 hpw/Part Time)
Closing date: Friday 9th April, 9am
Salary: £22,894 (pro-rata = £11,295)
This new role has been made possible due to funding from the National Lottery Community Fund, and will support the further embedding of an anti-racist approach across all of The Kite Trust’s activities, as well as co-creating new approaches to ensure the organisation is enabling equity of opportunities for LGBTQ+ young people who are Black, Asian or mixed ethnicities.
What these new approaches look like is to developed by the person appointed to this role working in partnership with young people and other community groups – it could be a new regular group, an additional residential, other one-off activities and workshops, partnerships with other local or national organisations, or something entirely different. The ability to facilitate young people’s ideas, and to provide support to realise them, will be crucial to this role.
This role will also support the delivery of The Kite Trust youth work services which cover Cambridgeshire and Peterborough between the team of appointed youth workers. This includes facilitating safe spaces for groups, providing individual support to LGBTQ+ young people and occasional schools and training delivery.
